Why a F1B doodle?

Anyone wanting a non-shedding doodle should buy a F1b doodle. Here’s a basic explanation of the F-factor.

  • If you breed a pure Golden Retriever with a Standard Poodle, it results in a F1 Goldendoodle (50% poodle - 50% Golden Retriever).
  • If you take that F1 Goldendoodle and breed that back to a Standard Poodle, you get the F1b Goldendoodle (75% poodle - 25% Golden Retriever).

The result of an F1b doodle is a very high probability of a non-shedding coat since the poodle coat is dominant.


Goldendoodles.com took a survey of Goldendoodle owners and found the following stats:
